This was my first stay at this hotel. The rooms are very quaint little bungalow type buildings set in a quiet grounds. Potentially the rooms could appeal to international travellers, however the carpets need changing and the bathrooms need to be freshened up and the cleaners need to pay a little more attention to cleaning around the toilet and the...

Stayed in Equator 4 nights. Like most reviewer pointed out, this us great hotel with strategic location near Mayjend Sungkuno and yet away from the noise, lots of green in hotel surrounding. Front office is highly efficient and helpful. Room is spacious with nice designed furniture, but the carpet and toilet are dirty and smelly; water pressure is very low,... More

Such a lovely hotel for the price, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Jalan Mayjend Sungkono in Surabaya but still very close to all the major areas on Surabaya. Very friendly staff most of whom speak english, beautiful gardens clean rooms and linen, carpets could do with replacing in some rooms and a repaint wouldnt go astray. Very... More

Great resort style hotel; nice room with some seriously beautiful furniture; nice facilities; decent breakfast; even greater for its' location in the quiet corner of the very busy West Surabaya Centre, suitable for both business and leisure. I'm sure it has live up to its' 4 stars standard in the past. Now, some serious makeover, on utilities, maintenance and housekeeping,... More

My first stay at this hotel as all my other choices were fully booked. Would have been a great place to holiday or stay a few years back as it is of the "resort/chalets" type. But the rooms and the grounds are in need of a total revamp. The room I stayed in was split-level and well furnished with stuff... More

I had visited Equator hotel in 2008 and had a very nice stay for 2 days. On my next trip to Surabaya I decided to stay there again, but it was disappointing. It was amazing how much the hotel had been run down for the last 3 years. The rooms were not clean, we had to change the room twice.... More

(+) Nice environment, nice staff, nice service, quiet room. Some people will love the ethnic style of interior. (-) Unfortunately, my room was not clean enough. I found the dead frog in the corner of the bathroom! Only 2 golf car available for transporting from room to the lobby (it can be so frustating when you in a hurry).
